Domaine MUGNERET-GIBOURG Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Feusselottes" 2018

Wine Region: Burgundy - France

Grape: Pinot Noir

Tasting notes: "The 2018 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Feusselottes is the ripest wine in the cellar this year, checking in at 14.2% alcohol, and the fermentation took a long time to finish; indeed, the wine only went to barrel in December. The Mugneret sisters' attentive vindication, however, has resulted in a superb cuvee that bursts from the glass with a lavish bouquet of raspberries, red cherries, rose petals, blood orange and warm spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and enveloping, with lively acids, superb concentration and a sun-kissed sweetness of fruit that reflects the vintage." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

About the winery:
The Domaine Mugneret-Gibourd, from Andre Mugneret and Jeanne Gibourd, was created in 1933 in Vosne-Romanee. Their son, Georges, took the estate over after pursuing a career in ophthalmology. Now the Domain is managed by the third generation, Marie-Christine and Marie-Andree, who share the same passion for vine and wine. Their primary ambition is to demonstrate the greatest respect for Pinot Noir, the grape variety from which they are fortunate enough to produce their wines. Mugneret-Gibourg wines are renowned for their classicism and finesse, purity and consistency over time.
